Join PACOís Mentoring Committee

Calling all PACO senior paralegals... if you are interested in an opportunity to give back to the community, please consider becoming a PACO Mentor by sharing your wealth of wisdom and insight you have gained over the years with mentees. PACOís Mentoring Program is for senior paralegals to guide, lead and coach paralegal students and junior paralegals down a path to success. A mentor does more than give advice and brainstorm with mentees, they act as a confidant and provide guidance by forming a trusting friendship in a mentor-mentee relationship.

If you are interested in becoming a PACO Mentor in providing your insight and wisdom with mentees, please send an email to Rebecca Lewis, PACO Mentoring Program Committee Chair, to learn more information at: mentor@pacoparalegals.org.

NFPA Certification Study Group

If you are interested strengthening your paralegal credentials by obtaining national certification, please contact Callie Kessler at ckessler@reminger.com. Callie is PACOís NFPA Secondary and Statewide Alliance Representative, and she will be starting a study group soon! The study group will focus on the CORE Competency Exam (PCCE) offered by NFPA. For additional information about the PCCE exam, please check out the Paralegal Certification tab on the NFPA website (membership is included with your PACO membership).

A Continued Opportunity to Help

Thanks to those of you who responded to this request from the YWCA Family Center! If you are still interested in helping, baby formula is still needed as described below:

URGENT: The YWCA Family Center is in need of plain iron-fortified baby formula. (Plain only please: gassy, fuss, advanced or supplemental not needed.)

This is an uncomplicated way to help through an agency that serves and assists people in need. If you are interested in helping meet this need, please contact:
